NEW PRODUCTION & DEVELOPMENT
Martin Lawrence‘s Big Momma is headed back to the big screen in a third family targeted Big Momma’s House movie (currently untitled), per Variety. Financed by Regency, the movie will be distributed by Fox. In addition to Lawrence, who reprises his role as FBI agent Malcolm Turner, the movie will star Brandon T. Jackson (Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightening Thief, Tooth Fairy, Tropic Thunder), as his 17-year-old nephew forced to go undercover with his uncle in a girls performing arts school after he witnesses a murder. Set to begin production in Atlanta next month, the movie is being directed by John Whitesell (Big Momma’s House 2) from a Matthew Fogel script. Randi Mayem Singer (Tooth Fairy, Mrs. Doubtfire) worked on a later version of the script. Also returning is producer David T. Friendly (the first two Big Momma’s House movies, Little Miss Sunshine). Big Momma’s House and Big Momma’s House 2 were released in 200 and 2006 respectively.
Warner Bros.’ is changing the name of Zack Snyder’s animated feature film Guardians of Ga’Hoole to Legend of the Guardians, per Heat Vision. While many are not surprised to hear of the change believing the title is hard to say/pronounce, the movie is based on Kathryn Lasky’s popular young adult book series, which includes 15 books. The Warner Bros., Village Roadshow and Animal Logic movie is still set for release in the US on September 24, 2010 and features a voiceover cast including Sam Neil, Jim Sturgess, Geoffrey Rush, Helen Mirren, Abbie Cornish and Hugo Weaving among many others.

Today’s Trivia Question: Who wrote this school essay? “The most interesting character I have ever known is my father. He does not have an interesting job, he just works hard and takes care of all of us. He never shot things in Africa or not saved anybody that was drowning, but that’s all right with me, because when I’m sick he brings me ice cream and when I tell him things or asks things he always listens to me. And he would use up a whole Saturday to make junk with me in the garage. He may not be interesting to you or someone else, because he’s not your father, just mine.” (Email Cynthia@cynopsis.com with your answer and be sure to include your name, company, city and time zone. Unofficial rules: Only the second four correct answers from each time zone will be mentioned; and once you’ve been mentioned in any of the Cynopsis editions, you can’t be mentioned again that calendar week.)
